Approximate hours of homework given

The following guidelines articulate the school’s broad expectations about the amount of time students might reasonably be expected to spend on home learning and provide a useful framework for parents. However, the precise amount of time spent on home learning is much less important than the quality of the tasks set and the way in which they are planned to support learning.
